Honda has not given any indication that the HR-V will have either of those featuresLooking at the new interior 360 views, the US mirror seems to have lights and a cable plugged into it. Is this a sign that the HR-V (EX, EX-L) might have Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning?
Take a look at the Accord site, on the 360 views. Both the hotspots for these features have them on the rear view mirror. That is where the sensor is, I believe.I'm not sure why either of those features would have anything to do with the rear view mirror. Those features use sensors outside the vehicle, and warnings usually come up on the instrument cluster.
Could be, but last I checked Honda didn't source their technology from Amazon.It is an auto dimming mirror. The middle button is the on/off switch , the left light is the on indicator and on the right is the sensor itself.
Yeah the last thing you would want is an exploding mirror.Gentex is to auto mirrors as Takata is to airbag modules. Not that they explode, rather they are a prolific OEM supplier to many auto assemblers.
I agree. I wish Honda had included the HomeLink on the HR-V. Looking at the complexity of the sunroof controls in the same picture I'm not sure there will be room to retrofit a HomeLink unit into it like has been done for other vehicles.I didn't realize that the sensors for those features are sometimes put in the mirror. Still, I think it is more likely for simpler things like garage door openers and the like.
These features are indeed available on the HR-V, just not in the US. You have to buy a Canadian model to get those features. The canadian models also get dual zone a/c and a few other features that the US models don't get.Looking at the new interior 360 views, the US mirror seems to have lights and a cable plugged into it.
